Which format should the Samples Database use?
As discussed here 6 months ago, we'd like to start a new organized
page for samples to be hosted, to allow to easily download and submit new ones
for others to evaluate. The format chosen needs to be OS-independent. We only
present 3 options. Pick one!

Note: if you already voted on the Flintstones forum, please be fair and don't vote here again. Thanks.

Is OptimFROG OS-independent?

If so then I would vote for that, as it gives the smallest file size (between the options).

Barring that, then WavPack.

FLAC would be last as at -8 it can't beat WavPack's strongest setting.
